The purpose of this quantitative predictive correlational study was to examine if, and to what extent, a predictive relationship existed between charismatic teaching and students' intrinsic and extrinsic motivation in community colleges in the Northwest United States. The theoretical foundation for this research was the charismatic leadership theory. Two research questions guided this study. The researcher examined if, and to what extent, charismatic teachers’ professional knowledge, positive character traits, sense of humor, quality instruction techniques, and overall charisma individually predicted community college students’ intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. There were 176 community college students recruited to participate in this study. Each participant was given three instruments: a demographics questionnaire, the Inventory for Teaching Charisma in College Classroom, and the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire. Data were collected from these instruments and analyzed using a stepwise multiple linear regression analysis to determine the predictive value of charismatic teaching in relation to students' intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. The results indicated that the global score of charismatic teaching was the highest predictor of intrinsic motivation (R2=.51), while the positive character traits subscale was the highest predictor of extrinsic motivation (R2=.09). Findings of the study suggested that teachers who exhibited professional knowledge, positive character traits, sense of humor, and quality instruction techniques positively impacted their students' intrinsic motivation in community college classes. In addition, results indicated that charismatic teaching did not significantly predict extrinsic motivation.
